Robert Margouleff is a Grammy Award winning American record producer, recording engineer, electronic music pioneer, audio expert, and film producer.

Most noted for his work with electronic music synthesizer programming for Stevie Wonder (beginning in the 1970s) for award-winning albums including "Music of My Mind", "Talking Book", "Innervisions", "Fulfillingness' First Finale" and "Jungle Fever", all projects which featured Margouleff (with collaborator Malcolm Cecil) as associate producers, engineers and synthesizer programmers.

By helping Stevie Wonder develop many new textures and sounds never heard before, Margouleff and Cecil played a major role in bringing synthesizers to the forefront of popular music. As an influential electronic music duo - Tonto's Expanding Head Band - they recorded the album "Zero Time" (1971) attracting attention from many other leading artists of that era to the newly emerging music technology.

Robert Margouleff was an early customer, friend and collaborator of fellow New Yorker and music instrument pioneer Robert Moog contributing early insight toward Moog's musical instrument development for artists to routinely program and use synthesizers as part of their evolving sound ecology.

Robert also worked with / produced Billy Preston, Devo, Jeff Beck, Robin Trower, David Sanborn, Depeche Mode, Oingo Boingo, The Doobie Brothers, Quincy Jones, Bobby Womack, The Isley Brothers, Gil Scott-Heron and Weather Report, Steven Stills, Dave Mason, Little Feat, Joan Baez, Steve Hillage, and many others.

Robert also was an early creative resource at Andy Warhol's "factory" eventually co-producing Ciao! Manhattan a semi-biographical Cult Film tale of 1960s counterculture icon Edie Sedgwick as one of Andy Warhol's "Superstars".
